I have heard some said that being addict on using the Internet could be a medical condition or psychological disorder. Do you believe in this?

hello, I think it is depends on the person if he/she will affected about it. I believed that there is an addiction to the internet but the fact that it will make you feel crazy or you will have a psychological disorder at all I think it is always depends on the person and not to the internet.

I believe so. I myself is addicted to Internet. :D I spend almost 8-12 hours a day with my laptop but that's because I'm still applying for a job.

Definitely. I have experienced this before.I always ignored the serious consequences that happened on me when I use the internet or sit in front of computer daily for around 8 to 10 hours.Its totally will harm our health and maybe if become worst it will influence our performance in daily activities. Maybe will experience frequent headache, body ache, feels sick and weakness on some parts of the body. If you're frequent user of internet or computer, I would like to advise you to do more exercise.

I think it depends on the person and on how internet affects his daily living. I am an internet addicts because I need it to functions and finish my tasks and without it, my online job is finished!

Hi Again Mark, Yes I do believe that for many people it an addiction. When I started using internet nine years ago, it really harmed me. I used to spend a lot of time, surfing internet and do unproductive thing. Sometimes it brought me to internet cafes from my school or work.
